Smokey the Bear

My visit to the local thrift shop this past Monday yielded a large pile of cool records, books and a very cool Fisher-Price Music Box Movie Camera from the late 60's, early 70's.
One of the cooler records I picked up was this Disneyland Record / a Little Golden Book & Record of Smoke the Bear from 1955.
From the first page of the book... Everyone knows that Smokey The Bear is the symbol of forest fire prevention. But, not many people know how Smokey got his name. And how many of you know why he wears a forest ranger's hat and a pair of dungarees? Let's turn the page and find out the whole story about this famous, real-life bear... [skipping to the last page]... And always remember Smokey's motto: "Only you can prevent forest fires."
As for the rest of the story? You will just have to find a copy of this little gem for yourself!
